Florida's Springs: Fanning Springs

Today I'm going to tell you about Fanning Springs.

Fanning springs is a wonderful place to go if your looking for nature or just wanna go for a swim.Fish such as sturgeons and guppies can be found in the swimming area along with the Suwanee River itself.There is a board walk that allows you to examine the river close and far.Manatees are occasional in the Springs in the Winter time.You can travel on the board walk to see many species of fish or just to get a look at The Highway.There is a 60+ mile long hiking trail which you can hike on to experience many species,from the huge Pileated Woodpecker to the dangerous Coral Snake. Swimming is a must on a hot Summer day.Snorkeling and Diving are allowed but you must have a Diving License to dive. On the trail you may spot some deer or owls,be sure to bring your camera! You may also see some vines hanging from the trees,if they're strong enough,enjoy a quick swing.There are info boards scattered throughout the park with info on the many animals and plants in the area.
What I like about the Springs is the hiking trails and the swimming areas..

That's my report on the Fanning Springs.The end. (P.S,all the pictures for this post were taken by me,except for the one of the Highway,my Mom took that one.)
